April 18, 2024 (EIRNS)—Frustrated with lack of real effort by the relevant international powers, especially the United States, to play their necessary role, the government of Qatar has announced it will be reassessing its role as mediator between Israel and Hamas, in negotiating a ceasefire and prisoner exchange.

Speaking at a news conference in Doha on April 17, Qatari Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said, “Qatar is in the process of a complete re-evaluation of its role.
